Fun and fearless bridal designs from China's fashion week
Enriched with oriental influences, China's Mercedes Benz Fashion Week certainly has something to offer most fun and fearless of brides. Full of colour, excitement and luscious silk prints, the vibrant designs of the wedding dresses are matched with equally eccentric bridal make-up.
But for the more traditional of wedding enthusiasts, be inspired by the metres of embroidered lace and princess-cut dresses. Created with flawless ivory white silk, the embossed dresses tailored with red lace are a nod towards China's own wedding values. So forget about wearing something blue; if red is your colour then you may want to consider an oriental inspired wedding. Ruby hues signify love, happiness and good luck – what could be more a perfect theme for your special day?
